Rajya Sabha Passes Anti-Doping Bill: A Law Regulating Doping Activities

Parliament passed the tough bill, which seeks to produce a framework for the operation of the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) and the National Doping Control Laboratory (NDTL).

Anurag Thakur, Minister of Sports and Youth, while responding to the debate said that with the help of this strict law, the country will be able to achieve 6000 per year and will increase significantly.
The country will join the league of countries like China, France, Japan and France, which have their laws to control doping in sport, he added.
To organize international sports tournaments, it was time to adopt a strict law on doping in sport and to strengthen the control laboratories.

The bill seeks to provide a framework for the operation of the NADA NDTL and other doping testing laboratories and the authority to conduct inspections, sample collection and the free flow of information.
The bill stipulates and prohibits the use of doping for any athlete and athlete support personnel.
The consequences of doping will directly lead to the disqualification of the athlete. The athlete will not be able to participate in any event or competition before the imposition decision on appeal.

The bill was introduced in the Lok Sabha last year and has since been thoroughly scrutinized by a parliamentary committee.
